How do you store passwords of different sites on your PC?

Roboform and lastpass is similar but roboform is more user friendly. It also automatically fill in your passwords on the website click of button. Lastpass is new, I wouldnt use them, instead go with roboform.
 
I have over 300 distinct passwords and keep them all in my head. How do i manage? I use an algorithm that is based on the site name, user name or both. All i have to know is the algorithm not the password.

For example for BHW:

first is number of characters in the domain name: 13
then first letter followed by 3rd letter followed by last letter: BlAckhatworlD - bad
then if number (13) is even I put a "#" otherwise I put a "&"
then 3 letters in reverse, excluding last letter: blackhatwORLd - lro
then the number plus 2: 13+2 = 15

password: 13bad&lro15

You can make it as complicated or as simple as you want.

epic! best post in here, i know about roboform already :p
 
Wow... How long does it take you to loggin? I'm sure you remember most of them.

Those who doubt password software have most likely never used a good program.

Some mention that they store them all in Firefox. Do you only use one computer? To keep all passwords saved on the PC, iPad, iPhone, and Notebook is difficult. Since SplashID will do that for me, I have no issues.

As for the comment about hackers using a key logger, yes, that is correct as I have old hacking experience. I keep my computer secure from hackers.

If I am on someone's computer, I never type the password or credit card number in the proper order. Instead, I'll type a few digits, use the back arrow a bunch, then forward, and then type more and repeat this over and over. Since key loggers track what you type and not what you submit, you are golden.

Opera browser stores my passwords, and they sync between all my computers:)
 
lastpass works for me, especially been able to set up a bunch of profiles. Makes forum/blog registering very easy & quick
 
I keep it in my mind... keyloger will fuck all of your so called "password meneger software"
 
I use a simple notebook, but I will use some of this software that you reccomend, I didnt know nothing about it
 
madoctopus - you rock! )

Now, all we need a small portable app (something like a KeePass, but simpler) that will let us to input/paste a domain name, choose/tick off some (2-3 no more) encoding parameters, and to deliver us an encrypted password. No database to keep.

To differentiate between accounts on the same domain we can add the number at the start or end of the domain.

This method works well for me for years, especially when dealing with few hundreds sites/servers.

BEWARE: This method works only for anyone who can stick to their own personalized algorithm in their own head. Much more secure than relying on 3rd party apps or note-it pads.
 
I have the more important ones in a notebook, the others I'd just create new accounts if I forgot the information.
 
@CoyoteAssassin I only use a few accounts on a daily basis. Generally if my security requirements for an account are low (e.g. a forum account) I just leave Firefox remember it. I only input by hand for my host acounts, paypal, etc. However the most important thing is if I am not on my computer I know any password I have for any account. Difficult thing is not to remember passwords but to remember the damn accounts lol.

That will not work at all.

And also passwords logins can be synced across different devices like roboform .

Also to throw off keyloggers, I use this:
